ImageA new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive update has been released. In this update the much anticipated Desert Eagle nerf has come.

One week after the last update, there are some news. Finally the Desert Eagle damage was reduced. In addition to this you can now spectate friends and other people who are playing competitive match making. Among the changes the developers have expressed on the home page. Among the changes the developers have expressed on blog.counter-strike.net:

"Last week we made some big changes to weapons based on pro feedback. Those changes were just a first step in the evolution of weapon balance in CS:GO, and that process continues with today’s update. We’ll continue to monitor player performance in the weeks to come, so head into a Deathmatch server and give the newest adjustments a shot. This update also includes an easy new way to watch your friends in action. To spectate your friends, just head over to the “Play With Friends” menu. If your friend is on an official matchmaking server, you’ll see a WATCH button next to the JOIN and INVITE buttons. Spectating is a great way to learn some new tricks, or to root for your favorite players while they’re in a match!"
